English Piano Music, 1780-1800
Easier Piano Pieces 31. Easier Piano Pieces (Abrsm)
In the closing decades of the 18th century London played a leading role in the development of the piano, and native English composers were active in writing simple pieces to cater for a public that increasingly regarded piano-playing as an essential social grace. This anthology is drawn from some of the many publications that were printed to meet this demand.
